The Barden Corporation Family Fun Day

Plymouth, Devon

September 2017

The Barden Corporation celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2017 and to mark the occasion, they wanted to hold a one-day event in the form of a Corporate Family Fun Day at their industrial premises in Plymouth on Saturday 9th September 2017.

Events Organised were fortunate enough to fully manage the event on behalf of the client from outset to completion. Over 600 employees and their families attended the occasion and everyone managed to have a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, despite the intermittent wet weather throughout the day!

We provided a range of entertainment including a staged area featuring a selection of local Live Bands, a Bouncy Castle, Punch & Judy Show, Face Painter and Circus Skills Workshop to keep the kids amused plus a Pit Stop Challenge, Side Stalls, Mobile Climbing Wall and Giant Scalextric for everyone to enjoy. We also provided a Gunge Tank which was used to raise funds for a local charity through guests donating money in exchange for seeing senior managers being covered in gunge! We also erected several marquees on the site on both grassed areas and hardstanding for the various amusements. The main marquee was home to a fantastic Mobile Bar which served guests with a selection of beers, wines, cider, real ales and soft drinks for the duration of the event.

The Barden Corporation Family Fun Day was a fantastic example of how we can transform the grounds of an industrial workplace to create an event that everyone will remember without the need of hiring a dedicated event space.



“Thank you for providing us with a fantastic family fun day to celebrate our 50th anniversary. You managed to transform the grounds and car parks at our premises in Plymouth into various zones to keep everyone thoroughly entertained throughout the event.


You saved me many hours of planning allowing me to do my day job – from liaising with Plymouth City Council regarding event licenses, to organising temporary structures and ensuring that the site was completely safe for guests.


The total event management that Events Organised provided on the day meant that I could relax and enjoy the event instead of worrying about all the little details. You kept me informed throughout the day with any requests or things I needed to know and James managed to successfully solve any issues caused by the rain showers and wind!


Many of the guests were simply delighted; the children really enjoyed the carefully-selected activities such as the Bouncy Castle, Circus Skills Workshop and Climbing Wall and the big kids were entertained with things like the F1 Pit Stop Challenge and Dual Racing Simulator.


All in all, despite the unpredictable weather, you managed to execute a successful event that will be fondly remembered by all those who attended for many years to come.”

Dick Lovett Family Fun Day

Bowood House, Wiltshire

September 2016

In 2016, we were privileged to get the opportunity to organise and fully event manage a Family Fun Day for the Dick Lovett Group who were celebrating 50 years of trading.


The event was a huge success and was attended by over 1500 employees and their families in the grounds of the beautiful Bowood House and Gardens in Wiltshire. Guests were treated to entertainment as soon as they arrived through the gates at 10am in the form of The Swingsters Jazz Trio


We had a main arena that featured entertainment such as informative Duck Herding Displays, the hilarious Lamb National and an incredible Dog Display Team. As well as the main ring, we also had a stage where acts performed such as Chris Jarvis and Pui Fan Lee from CBeebies as well as Peppa Pig and George dress up characters, much to the delight of all the children (and some adults) in attendance!


We also had some amazing live music from the Dakota Sons at the latter part of the event. Aside from the main ring and stage entertainment, guests were treated to a range of other entertainment and activities such as Zorbing, Laser Clay Shooting, Segway Driving, a Bouncy Castle, Laser Tag, Formula One Simulators, Funfair Attractions and even a Bake Off Tent where guests were invited to bring along their creations for judging!



"Thank you so much for providing the Family Fun Day last weekend.


Your attention to detail really showed on the day, and my mailbox has been full with very positive messages from our staff.


The Directors were delighted how you were able to meet our requirements such as including changing mats, hand washing stations and a microwave in the baby changing tent.


The Bake Off tent even included genuine bunting from the show! You really saved us the time and hassle by doing the hard work which allowed us to enjoy ourselves on the day.


We will be recommending Events Organised to anyone looking to book a Corporate Family Fun Day!"
